  • We weren't up for walking the animal trail, but did take the boat ride. Our captain was very knowledgeable about the area, and we actually saw some loons. Nice way to spend the morning.

  • If you like peace and nature this is a place for you. The nature walk was a wonderful time learning about nature as you are immersed in it. Wonderful. I also too the lake boat trip that only made thing even better. Great Karma
  • It was nice to visit. However , the price is high yet I understand why. They are a nonprofit and need the money. I do wish they had a post up talking about the animal in the exhibit. For example the 3 legged fisher. I would of liked to of learned more about them. Is there a sight online to learn about them. Some stuff was closed but is understandable.
